March 31, 1931 – January 28, 2020
It is with sadness that the family of Jean (Marjorie) Blair announces her passing in the early morning hours of January 28, 2020.
Marjorie was born March 31,1931 in Prince George. At the time her family was living in the small hamlet of Sinclair Mills. They later moved to Kimberly, then Vancouver, then Lac La Hache and finally to Williams lake where she would meet and marry Alan Blair in February of 1951. They had been married 60 years when Alan passed away in December of 2011.
Music was a big part of Marj’s life. She started playing the violin at the age of 5 years. All of her family played a musical instrument and we all enjoyed family concerts after a Sunday dinner at her parents. She enjoyed being a part of the community orchestra and played in many local musical productions. In retirement she was a member of the Williams Lake Old Time Fiddlers and enjoyed many happy hours with the group, whether they were playing for a dance or just having a jam session. The highlight of being involved with the Fiddlers was a trip to Expo 86 where they performed daily to audiences from around the world.
She was a Life member of the Order of Eastern Star, Princess Pine Chapter 67 and made many wonderful friends within the organization.
But to us she was the best Mom in the world. She loved her kids, grandkids, great grandkids and grand fur babies and we loved her to the moon & back.
She was pre deceased by her parents, Cliff & Mary McIntosh, her sister Willeta Blair, and her brother Allan McIntosh and her granddaughter Annie Ramier.
She is survived by daughter Bonnie ( Ramon Hagkull) Mayne Island BC, son Ross & Becky, Creston BC, daughter Jan Ramier, Williams Lake, BC and daughter Barb (Kevin Marusyk) Fort Frances, Ont.
Grandchildren Stacey Hagkull, Lindsay Walters ( Dave) Tim & Derryk Blair, Sarah Marusyk ( Paul Brunetta) and Alex Marusyk (Kylie Thickett), her Great Grandchildren Jaden Phang, Fraser & June Walters, her brother in law Robin Blair, and many nieces & nephews, great nieces & nephews and great, great nieces & nephews.
Special thanks must be given to the excellent staff at the Village, 2nd floor, Eagleview. They went above & beyond to provide a loving and caring home for our Mom and we will always be grateful for that.
The family is planning a Celebration of Life in the summer.
